The Blueye underwater drone is designed for optimal control, which enables users to capture high-quality video footage. The Blueye Pioneer is fitted with 4 different thrusters making it possible to dive in all directions. In addition to the thrusters, the Blueye ROV is designed with several different modes for optimal diving performance.
If you're diving deep, in a strong current, or have the need to reach your point of interest quickly, boost-mode is effective.
To activate boost-mode, press the right button (R2) of the controller. Push and hold the button in to increase the power of the thrusters. Note that the boost can be gradually controlled. Push the button all in to achieve 100%.
NB: Boost mode drains battery power faster than normal mode.
